McDonaldâs Abuse Of Student Guest Workers Stirs Protest
Latin American and Asian student guest workers participating in the State
Departmentâs J-1 program, expected decent work and a meaningful cultural
experience in the USA. Instead, they were sent to work at McDonaldâs, who
paid them below the minimum wage and when they complained of the exploitation
were subjected to retaliation. So, they went on strike against the Pennsylvania stores where they worked and then came in protest to NYâs Times Square McDonaldâs with supporters from National Guest Worker Alliance, UnitedNY
and the Retail Action Project. There they further announced their plans to take their protest directly to McDonaldâs headquarters and the home of CEO
Don Thompson if McDonaldâs doesnât take responsibility for ending labor
abuses for all its workers.
